Farrow & Ball unveil new wallpapers inspired by the 1940s

September 7th, 2016

To celebrate their 70th year, the British paint and paper craftsmen at Farrow & Ball have unveiled 3 new wallpapers inspired by the 1940s, the decade when Farrow & Ball first started inspiring the decor of British homes.

Embracing the paradoxical feel of the postwar period, a time of looking forward while stepping back, the three uniquely textured papers are contemporary interpretations of classic 1940s prints.


Embracing the romantic vibe of the art deco movement, Arcade is a beautifully tactile scallop design with an inherently sophisticated feel.


With its ploughed fields, picket fences and farmyard animals, Gable’s charming rural scene perfectly captures the innocence of simpler times.


Its bold geometric designs comprised of interlocking rectangles makes this simple yet dynamic paper invigorating to the eye.

Made using their traditional process, Farrow & Ball artisanal wallpapers are block printed using Farrow & Ball paints. Each design is available in seven colourways ranging from delicate neutrals and muted pastels, to bolder tones with metallic accents.
